Does the 1 have a market?

The V2 with FT1 mount adapter and high burst rate seems like an attractive proposition for Nikon owners until you look into the details. The FT1 is limited to center point single servo AF, which makes it nearly useless for moving subjects. So you'll have to use native Nikon 1 glass for any kind of action photography, and those lenses are large, heavy, and low in optical quality versus their M43rd competitors. And the DxO tests show that anyone shooting a D800 or even a D5200 will be painfully disappointed by the image quality coming out of their V2. The only photographers that would benefit from Nikon 1 are those upgrading from a camera phone. And then they would be better served by other cameras, including the M43rds system or even the Sony RX100.
